Welcome, wild parrot watchers, to BrooklynParrots.com – a site focusing on the remarkable Monk Parakeets (AKA Quaker Parrots) of Brooklyn.

Private: A homepage section

This is an example of a homepage section. Homepage sections can be any page other than the homepage itself, including the page that shows your latest blog posts.


BrooklynParrots.com is a site launched in 2005 to share information about the wild Quaker Parrots (AKA Monk Parakeets) of Brooklyn. The site hosts photos of the parrots, reports from the field, frequently asked questions about the birds, and notices about the periodic “wild parrot safaris” offered to the general public.

The world’s first cartoon about the Brooklyn Parrots…

The wonderful folks at BRIC Arts Media  made a nice video on the Brooklyn Parrots (AKA Monk Parakeets) that just came out today. I hope you enjoy it — BTW BRIC is a great institution whose mission is to bring today’s tech-centric tools of expression to the larger community. Please support them!

Brooklyn Parrots on (and in) the air!

I had the recent pleasure of meeting WCBS News Radio88 reporter Mike Sugerman and relating to him the strange tale of the wild parrots of Brooklyn. The result is a very nice story on the “boids” posted to WCBS’ site today. Check it out at: https://wcbs880.radio.com/articles/news/sweet-spot-mike-sugerman-wild-parrots-brooklyn
